The world is faced with serious and complex social and environmental problems that require a deep understanding of the systems where they occur in order to find innovative solutions. This course introduces students to the concepts, strategies and processes of social innovation and social change. It examines the state of the world from a social economic perspective focusing on how social innovation can help solve existing and future problems. The course also explores how social entrepreneurship, with its challenges and opportunities, functions as the vehicle for social innovation. From this standpoint discussions will be raised on whether innovation and entrepreneurship require a non-deterministic mentality, in order to deal with uncertainty and complexity.
